Previous GOP House Rep Loses Primary After Attack By Trump

2018 Election: What to expect in Nevada, Virginia, Maine, North Dakota and South Carolina - Philly Trump attacks Republican up for re-election with reference to affair

But Trump's preference for populist candidates like Corey Stewart, the Confederate-statue-supporting Republican who won the GOP nomination for Senate in Virginia on Tuesday, increasingly seems to be remaking the GOP, if not Congress, in his image.

President Donald Trump slammed Republican Congressman Mark Sanford for not supporting his agenda, alluded to the lawmaker's extra martial affair and endorsed his primary opponent - all with less than three hours before polls close in SC. And he's just out there, I say, in 'Mark-Land.' It's an academic ideology that does not translate to the actual meat of what America is. The President of the United States then called the congressman and former S.C. governor, "MIA and nothing but trouble".

The congressman had been a rising star in the GOP in 2009 when his aides told reporters he was missing because he was hiking the Appalachian Trail - only for him to get caught instead returning from Argentina, where he had been visiting his mistress. He won the Charleston-based congressional seat in a special election, and established himself as a fiscally conservative, libertarian-leaning voice and member of the House Freedom Caucus.

"The race ultimately was reduced down to who was more Trump, versus not, and I lost that race", Sanford acknowledged.

During her campaign, Arrington vowed to support President Donald Trump's political agenda.

First-term state Rep. Katie Arrington (R-Dorchester) defeated Sanford, earning more than 51 percent of the vote to Sanford's 46 percent.

'She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. Our president is going to be the president until 2020 at a minimum, or 2024, and Mark has ostracized him to the point where there will never be a seat at the table for him, ' she said at a campaign event.

Sanford was elected to his current spot in 2013 after serving as the state's governor from 2003 to 2011.

In an interview with Politico last weekend, Sanford suggested that a loss in his re-election bid could cause other Republicans to think twice before speaking out against the Trump administration. Alabama Rep. Martha Roby was forced into a runoff. Others have told us Trump's tweet was indispensable, driving additional turnout during the final critical afternoon rush. Harry Reid, and Chris Giunchigliani, who was endorsed by Hillary Clinton and is a woman, which has proven to be a decisive advantage in earlier Democratic contests this year. He is better of in Argentina. In his remarks Tuesday night, he said: "I stand by every one of those decisions to disagree with the president". The president's tweet also calls Virginia's Democratic Sen. In North Dakota, GOP Representative Kevin Cramer was declared the party's primary victor, setting him up to run against Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Trump won the district in 2016 by a margin of 53% to 40%. As admirable as that is in the abstract, Sanford did not seem to realize that that plank of the Republican agenda was one of the most unpopular, even in a deep-red state like SC.

Sanford is a second U.S. House member from the South attacked by a challenger for criticizing Trump.

Golden was leading late Tuesday.

But asking voters multiple questions on each race further drags things out. In the swing state of Nevada, Democratic Representative Jacky Rosen sailed to the nomination to face vulnerable Republican Senator Dean Heller.

"Women have been leading the resistance, leading in activism and come November they will lead the way in Democrats taking back the House", said Christina Reynolds, top strategist for EMILY's List, a Democratic organization that recruits and funds pro-choice Democratic women to run for office.
